Forbidden Fruit

Forbidden Fruit by Jo Bradford

To satisfie the sharp desire I had
Of tasting those fair Apples, I resolv'd
Not to deferr; hunger and thirst at once,
Powerful perswaders, quick'nd at the scent
Of that alluring fruit, urg'd me so keene.

(Satan tempting Eve)

Milton ~ Paradise Lost (9.584-588)
